The Global Human Capital Report 2017


The Global Human Capital Index 2017 ranks 130 countries on how well they are developing their human capital on a scale from 0 (worst) to 100 (best) across four thematic dimensions - capacity, deployment, development and know-how - and five distinct age groups or generations - 0-14 years; 15-24 years; 25-54 years; 55-64 years; and 65 years and over - to capture the full human capital potential profile of a country.

The Capacity subindex quantifies the existing stock of education across generations; the Deployment subindex covers skills application and accumulation of skills through work; the Development subindex reflects current efforts to educate, skill and upskill the student body and the working age population; and the Know-how subindex captures the breadth and depth of specialized skills use at work.

Belgium obtains the 15th position (out of 130 countries) and a score of 72.46. The country score card gives the score of Belgium for the four thematic dimensions.
